Important Update

We want to thank everyone who has registered, supported, or shown interest in the FIRST Annual Monroe City Out of the Darkness Walk to be held at Mosswood Meadows Gulf Course. We have looked forward to the 2021 OOTD Walk and to bringing a message of hope and healing to the community. After much deliberation, we have decided to scale back our event for this year.

Saturday, October 9, 2021 - Mosswood Meadows Golf Course
8:00 AM to 10:00 AM - During this time you can can walk at your leisure with your team, pick up your earned 2021 walk t-shirt, pick up resource materials, beads, purchase AFSP gear, and turn in any money you may have collected. We highly encourage walkers to walk with their teams in their neighborhoods wearing their gear, carrying their signs and/or photos of loved one lost to suicide to help raise awareness. Post photos to social media using #OOTDMonroeCity and #togetherToFightSuicide. Here is the link to the Monroe City OOTD event page to post any pictures to: https://fb.me/e/1suCTDekn 

We look forward to seeing everyone on October 9th.

Why Register?

Our community has always been the heart of the Out of the Darkness Walks. Your safety and well-being will always be our top priority, and while we remain hopeful that we'll be able to gather in person once again this fall, we are closely monitoring CDC and local guidelines and will continue to share updates in the coming weeks and months.

Though there are many unknowns, there are a few things we know for sure:

  1. You belong to a strong community united in an effort to fight suicide while showing up for yourself, recognizing and honoring those you love, raising awareness, educating communities, supporting one another, and sharing hope.
  2. We remain dedicated to providing you with opportunities to connect, heal, share stories, create impact, and show you that you are not alone.
  3. Mental Health and suicide prevention are more important than ever, and we’re confident that with your help we can reach more people than ever before.

Activities of Hope and Healing

Honor Beads

Losing someone to suicide or struggling with a mental illness can feel like no one understands what you are going through. Unlike other illnesses, it is difficult to look at someone and know their connection. There is an honor bead for everyone, whether you have lost a loved one, struggle personally, support a friend and/or family member, or all of the above. Learn more by watching our honor bead video.

 

The Out of the Darkness Experience is a journey of remembrance, hope, and support. It unites our communities and provides an opportunity to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and the lives of those we love and care about.
